    Glad he didn't get hurt.

    Re: Billet Oil Pan

    Very lucky this time. He rides pretty much year round and has other bikes - so he will be ok. I would have preferred to be home when he called instead of in DC. But he got home safe.

    I want to have a peak to see how low the oil pick up extends into the sump/pan. If we can reduce the height/depth by an inch (or more), and put the drain on the rear or side (instead of bottom) that would be great. Yes, the ZG1000 pan makes a lot of sense, but as others have noted, the exhaust on many ZRX's hangs lower than the pan. Another friend bought a beautiful exhaust for his KZ1000 project and it came with a thinner oil pan so the exhaust can be up higher and tighter.

    PM me for great prices on Íhlins shocks and forks!

    Highly opinionated and somewhat twisted, or so I've been told.

    The pick up goes way down to the bottom of the pan, within 1/2" I believe.

    With both my Kerker and Black Widow I had to machine the oil filter removal plate to get clearence as they do sit pretty "high"...(the collector box )
    So you can't raise it up any further...

    I just don't like that "cows udder" look of the ZRX pan

    It is just begging "to get milked"..!!!
